At Chalkville Elementary for decades, she got great joy and personal satisfaction teaching thousands of students to read, and the first word she taught was always “look.” Mrs. Anton was a member of First United Methodist Church of Trussville, and previously belonged to Huffman First United Methodist Church. The family wishes to thank the staffs of Greenbriar at the Altamont in Birmingham and Gardens on Quail in Arvada, Colorado for their care during her illness.
